Galaxy S8 Plus

Battery tests carried out by PhoneArena shows that the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus lasts longer than all the current Android flagships. The smartphone is only second to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. The site has reported that the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus lasted for exactly 8 hours under the usage conditions.

Galaxy S8 Battery Life

The Galaxy S8+ battery life test result stands at exactly 8 hours. Compare this with the 7 hours and 18 minutes that the already very good Galaxy S7 Edge scored, and you see that Samsung has managed to improve on their last year’s phone. The S8+ also bests the Google Pixel XL, the OnePlus 3T, but falls a bit short of the battery life on the iPhone 7 Plus

This is great news and the Galaxy S8 can easily last for a full day under heavy usage and can push a day and a half with moderate usage. There was a bit of a concern regarding the battery life of the S8 Plus as it had a huge 6.2 inch display and only a 3500 mAh battery.

Samsung’s Fast Adaptive Charging tech too performed decently in the test.

It is able to fully recharge its battery in just 1 hour and 40 minutes. This is not the fastest we have seen, but it is not too far off.

However, charging times are much longer when a wireless charger is used.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus were announced last week and was highly praised for it’s bezel-less and seamless design.
